Amazon

  • Outlander says: “I found this book at my library to help with Windows 8.1. No, I’m not a senior. :)”

Bridal gowns

  • To add to yesterday’s collection, Mandi says: “For wedding dresses- try house of hope in Barrington. Some of the dresses are older, but alot of them were donated from wedding boutiques for the tax write off. I found mine there -never been worn, beautiful hand beaded detailing all over the dress. I just had to get it hemmed. All the dresses are $50. The veils range in price. Also the ladies that work there are very friendly. They also have formal dresses for bridesmaids/ mother of the bride. Check their website, they have particular hours. Hope this helps!”

Costco

Cost Plus World Market

  • From John W: “Weds. April 23 is World Market’s one day BOGO coffee sale on their house brand 12 oz. coffees, which start at $5.99 (regular and decaf, it’s a very good deal on decaf). So, get 6 coffee for $17.97, use a 10% off coupon (via email or the 4/13 World Market ad, or joining at worldmarketexplorer.com/benefits) to make it $16.17, plus members (World Market Explorer) will get double coffee credits, enough for one free bag of coffee in the future (you can get the expensive kinds for free, too). So that’s 7 bags of coffee for $2.31 each, a great deal on good coffee.”

Coupons

  • Theresa posts on Facebook: “In today’s Chicago Tribune, the back cover of the wrap-around for the sales inserts has a nice Brach’s candy coupon – $1 off any one Brach’s product, 12 oz. or smaller. Expires 6/1/14. Wanted to point it out, since it is easy to miss.” Yesterday, I got this in my hand-delivered ads and Rachel got it in her mailed ads.

CVS

  • On the allergy rebate, Suzann wonders: “Do you have to buy the 48 count? If you could do the 24 count as Jenny at the Southern Savers blog points out your mm would be over $14.00.” The rebate doesn’t seem to specify a size.

Fannie May

  • Sent over by feelgood: “Easter Candy Sale – Up to 50% @ fanniemay.com Sale items, low to high sort - items from $1.99. And, these coupons stack with sale prices: 53119  - 30% off $30 purchase 11999  – 15% off any purchase”

Food 4 Less

  • On the 4/$8.00 cereal that gets you a free gallon of milk, ellen says: “you could use the cereal coupon that came with the sunday paper.” There was a $1.00/1 and samples with some Sunday papers, but I got mine with Saturday’s Sun-Times.

Jewel

  • Raegan posts in Hot Deals: “Some of the EB Farms 5oz salads have $1/2 peelies on them too.” I have seen them at Meijer recently as well.
  • Regarding post-redeeming store coupons, Ashley says: “Yes from experience it works just as well. It’s any coupon they said.” Yes, this is one thing I have never had a problem with at Jewel, lol.
  • Theresa emails: “Jewel pizza Catalina”
    jewel digiorno

Piggly Wiggly

  • Outlander found: “New Piggly- Wiggly in Carol Stream has gallons of skim milk on special for 99 cents (49 cents after Ibotta) because it expires on 4/26. Even found a gallon of Organic milk for $1.99 exp. 4/29. Time to make quiche, rice pudding…”

Went to the Lemont Target a few days ago and they had 24-oz chicken drumsticks marked $3.19 with $2.00 off clearance stickers. After the $1.00 mobile coupons, paid $0.19 for each!”

Internet service

  • From feelgood: “looking for cheaper internet service, you may want to look into this offer on Groupon. You can get up to 500 mb a month free, or 2 gb for $17.99. Don’t get the stick, it’s only for one device…the Photon is a hotspot and several devices can sign on at the same time. Uses 4G Sprint. Lots of mixed reviews on freedompop, though.”

Jewel

  • Kari O. shares: “I found after Easter Fresh Turkey and Turkey Breasts for 99¢/lb at two different Jewel-Osco’s today. Not a bad price since there’s no minimum purchase and it’s not Thanksgiving. We got 2 for the freezer. I’m also searching for clearanced Easter hams too. Has anyone seen any markdowns on those?”

Mobile phone plans

  • April shares: “For a cell phone plan I use Family Mobile from Walmart. It’s based on Tmobile network . $45 per month includes unlimited talk and text + 5 gb Internet access. I think you can add additional lines for $10-15. The draw back that you can’t recieve any of text massages from Target with coupons”

Printing

  • A tip from Matt: “When you go to the resale shop look for ink that matches your printer. Every once in a while I find expensive ink for under $5. Sometimes the outer box is damaged and the ink is sealed inside.”

Reader requests

  • An Ultra Foods question from Jeff: “Does anyone know if the aloha Hawaaian punch is included in the sale to use the 1.00 off coupon tia”
  • From benita: “I am looking for a wedding dress for a friend. Last year house of hope in arlington heights has a may bridal sale, but they are no longer running the sale. Goodwill and the Salavation Army is a hit or miss. Does anyone know of sample sales, charity shops, etc for wedding dresses. The wedding is a year away, so if the sale is later in the year that is ok.”
  • An idea from Samantha: “I had seen this in the Sunday Trib and it looked cool”
  • Martina says: “Low in Kellogg’s Raisin Bran as well. Thank’s again :0)” There is a $3.00/3 printable here. Anyone know of a good place to use it?
  • She also is: “Looking for a deal on Flushable Cleansing Cloths (Scott, Cottonelle…). Thank you :0)” This Amazon deal is one idea, any others?

Target

  • For the Method deal, liz noticed: “theres a $1.00 off handwash method on my shopmium also!”
  • A baby food deal from andi: “check totallytarget.com’s post (search Ella) on some of the recent baby deals. I got 4 pouches of Ella’s organic baby food for a friend for $0.40 total, or 10 cents each. TotallyTarget provides a link to a $1 printable, which works on a single item (obviously, you’ll need multiple printers as it’s 2 per [computer]). Then, Target text club for baby deals provides a $1.50/4 Target coupon. Lastly, I had 10% on Cartwheel (not sure when this expires). Had I been able to get ALL Strawberry apple, it would have been $0.06 total for all four. However, store was picked over, and I had to get other pouches with a ring price of $1.77 (the strawberry/apple was $1.39). Then used my redcard, of course.” Unfortunately, the Cartwheel expired 4/19.

Walgreens

  • Tamara found: “Free Glade Decor refills at Walgreens. $1 each when you buy 3. Buy 4 at $1 and use two $2/2 from rightathome.”

Walmart

  • On the Hamburger Helper deal, Jane says: “I just printed up the rebate and it is limit 2 offers per address! I wonder how much ground beef is at Walmart anyway? That is $12.88 worth of free meat!” Not sure, but you could price match that as well!

Hamburger Helper — coupon + meat rebate

freebeef

Here’s a new rebate you can print to send in for FREE ground beef (up to $6.44) when you buy three boxes of classic Hamburger Helper at Walmart.

Since you have to shop at Walmart, what I’d do is wait til Hamburger Helper goes $.88-$1.00 elsewhere, then price match.

  • And he found: “There is also a printable $1/1 Sparkle coupon here (works 2 times, hit PRINT again):”

Meijer

  • Leslie comments: “Morning Star Farms is on sale at Meijers starting Thursday for the Chicagoland area. B3G1 @ $3.33. Meijer usually particapates in the National Cat’s.”

Printers

  • Experience from letsshop: “Epson can’t cheat with the re manufacturer ink ):” You may have luck with different models, though.
  • Kari O. says: “My in laws have an Epson printer and they use the super cheap refilled ink they buy off eBay. The only thing is the printer asks you EVERY time if you want to print with a non-approved ink because the quality may not be good. It’s works fine.”

Target

  • Mollie W says: “Regarding the Magnum Ice Cream Bars. I took the Ultra Ad to my Target store and matched the price which was 2.50 a box of three. I used two coupon of 1.25 each and bought two boxes making that $2.50 for two boxes. Target will match prices at the cust. service desk.” Update — this may have been last week or an unadvertised sale, I don’t see them in this week’s ad.

Walgreens

  • From letsshop: “Did a good deal at Walgreens today , bought 2 Irish Spring body wash 2 for $7.00  free after using 2 coupons  4/6SS  $1.50/1 coupon and $4 RR Gear body wash is included in sale”

Walmart

  • Outlander reports: “Speaking of Challenge butter, I wanted to price match it at Walmart, but they don’t carry it unfortunately. :( I printed a lot of those $1/1 Qs, so hopefully it will go on sale at Meijer again for $2 before they expire.”

Big favor: If you mention other sites, online coupons, etc, please include the link. Disclaimer: All of the deals below come straight from readers.

Berkot’s

  • Jane says: “I used my 2- $1/1 printables for the Challenge butter Wed. to get them for $1.28 each….but then I noticed in this weeks Berkots ad, they had them for only $2 each. I was going there anyway this morning, so I tried to get another 2 for only a dollar each but they denied my coupon because it had a JEWEL LOGO on it! She even brought out the manual showing me the policy. It is a manuf. coupon and does not say ONLY at Jewel….I left them on the belt. Silly. Just wanted to share it w/ others who may shop there.”

Gardening

  • Nikki shares: “I purchased the rain barrels Aileen is talking about last year. Unless they’ve changed it, it is a limit of 2 per household. They were not delivered in the time frame promised (shocker, right? LOL) but they were nice enough to hide them from street view, as we were not there when they were delivered. They were easy to install, came with instructions, & all the necessary hardware. After researching many rain barrels, these were the cheapest we found at the time.”

Jewel

  • Something to look for from Outlander: “At Jewel, if you are doing $5/5 Kraft deal with Kool Aid Jammers, look for clearance ones (lemonade and watermelon flavors) for $1.58, so only $0.58 after the discount.”

Online deals

  • On the cheap refurbished desktop, Matt says: “I would add is that refurbished with desktop computers typically just means the computer was used, so they just wiped the hard drive and reinstalled a fresh copy of Windows. Individuals or businesses refurbishing computer are basically just part of a program where Microsoft allows them a cheaper license to put Windows on a used computer that has not had a motherboard change or processor upgrade so that it can resold or donated. Other types of refurbished products actually had something wrong with them and were repaired, so there may be a little more risk involved.  Definitely for the kids a machine like this is slightly faster than an old XP machine. Pick up a cheap flat panel monitor from the Good Will for under $10 and they’re ready to go. This machine was probably around in the early days of Vista (pre-2009) and may have had Vista or XP on it originally. You can usually get a decent used dual core machine on eBay for $100, but a lot of times the machines don’t come with an operating system. The biggest thing to check on a machine like this is to do a quick Google search to determine how much RAM you can put in these because that is the main thing that can be upgraded in a machine like this.” He also shares this link.

Target

  • For the paper products deal, Kari O. says: “don’t forget there is a $1/1 Bounty DuraTowel in the coupon booklets from Pampers diaper cases! Also Target sent out those Spring mailers last month with $1/1 and $1/2 Paper Items which include Bounty 6ct+ packs.”
  • A deal from Jordan: “Use the Aveeno coupon in the latest of the Target Baby mobile coupons and the 5% off Aveeno on Cartwheel, then get $2 back from Checkout 51 for Aveeno baby lotion for as low as $.74 each.” Not everyone will have the Aveeno baby offer, but definitely worth checking your Checkout 51!

Walmart

  • For more cheap detergent, Mallory realized: “If you “unlike” Ajax on Facebook and “relike” them again, it will let you print it more than once! :)”

Coupons

  • Artie comments: “Anyone else notice that perhaps because of the price increase Tribunes were selling faster at Dollar Tree? My store opens at 8AM and by 9:15 over 80% were gone. How long before people try to start reselling them?”
  • Jane says: “Did you also notice the exclusion on the Vidal Sassoon coupon, excludes 12 oz. size! That is not a tiny bottle. This was the one we got free at Family Dollar a few weeks ago. Geez.”

Dollar General

  • Darlene posts on Facebook: “If you are at Dollar General anytime soon & see “RubyKist 100% Apple Cider” — have the cashier price check it. $.01 at my Dollar General yesterday!! (Seasonal item from fall that ‘shoulda been pulled’ is what cashier told me) Date on the 8 bottles I bought — for $.08!! — is 9/15/15, so that’s not the issue. I went in for paper plates, napkins, spotted these on an endcap & thought that sounded good with some spiced rum I had at home :) No price on shelf or bottle. When it rang up for $.01, I sent my teenager back to pick up the other 7 bottles on the shelf. WOW!”
  • She adds: “There were some other juices on the endcap, too. Tampico, some v8, etc. Might head in there today to price check some of those — IDK. can’t hurt, I suppose.”

Easter Bunny

Meijer

  • From Kim: “The sara lee boxed snack cakes are 2.50 and there is a 1/1 q making them 1.50 each.” We didn’t get it in the Tribune, unfortunately.

Rebates

  • Kitty emails: “There is a Try Me Free rebate for the Ban Wipes The package sticker says,    Visit      feelbanfesh.comrebate    to complete the rebate form.  UPC, receipt and sticker are required. 1 per household through 4-30-14. Wonder if using the free coupon will affect the rebate. Usually it doesn’t but it did on those glucose meters Walgreens has a while back.”

Tanga

  • Some information on the massager, from letsshop: “Mine helps sometimes depends on how bad pain is ,electrodes can be costly last a short time ,temporary fix on pain in certain parts of body .I put mine up all the way ,so electronic impulses can relieve some of the nerve pain .I get mine free threw Medicare cause of back problems and being a senior. Its generally called 10s unit if its the one I think it is .”

Target

  • An idea sent over by Kitty: “I got a great deal on 12 oz Driscoll’s blackberries at Target.  They are $2.50, less 5% cartwheel ($2.37), less $1 MQ from Driscoll’s survey.  That made them $1.37 for 12 oz.  I am pretty sure the Driscoll’s survey is still active.  I do it every few weeks and can print 5 or more coupons each time.”
  • For the new coupon, Shandelle says: “There’s also 15% off Reddi-Wip in Cartwheel (Exp 4/19). I read elsewhere these are 2/$4 at Kroger right now (not sure which region), so $1 after the coupon.”

Walgreens

  • From liz: “this week I got flat out wraps for 1.99 unadvertised sale at walgreens normally these are 2.99.. they keep them frozen so you can ask for some from the back and keep them frozen at home…once thawed they have a shelf life of 16 days…this is the best price I have seen for these”
  • For anyone going today, letsshop found that the 21 ct Neutrogena wipes are $6.49 and BOGO 50%. Use the $2.00/1 in the April book (will come off each) and $3.00/2 in the 3/23 SS to make your OOP $2.73. Then submit for $2.00 back with Checkout 51!

Walmart lauching new organics line

walmart

This is interesting, don’t you think? “Walmart and Wild Oats Launch Effort to Drive Down Organic Food Prices” — read the full press release here.

Walmart, the nation’s largest grocer, announced today it will carry Wild Oats organic food items. Originally introduced in 1987, Wild Oats will relaunch at Walmart starting this month with a new, more affordable price point on quality products covering a broad variety of categories – from salsa and pasta sauce to quinoa and chicken broth. Customers will save 25 percent or more when comparing Wild Oats to national brand organic products.*

They have a couple of examples at the bottom — for example, 6 oz tomato paste will be $.58, 32 oz chicken broth $1.98.
